I have a question on why Morocco's per capita is so low.

Judging by the city's layout I see on google earth, Morocco seems like it should at least have a per capita of $10,000. Also I find it strange that Egypt(which I have visited previously) has a higher capita, despite the fact that it has a much larger population and that Morocco looks more developed, in my opinion. I have never been to Casablanca, only a day-trip to Tetouan, but from google earth Casablanca looks clean, organized, and with decent infrastructure. Do you guys feel as if Morocco's GDP per capita is undervalued at $4,745?

That is a very good question I have no idea why is it so low a country with a GDP of about 5000 dollars or less is an extremely poor country with no hope and is very bad shape but Morocco is not like that , my guess is that the rural areas are so poor that is why I think it is so low but I am not an expert
Let us hope someone can answer your question

exemple : (selon wikipedia - CIA World Factbook)
Guinée équatoriale 50 200$ 2005 est.

et pourtant regarde ca selon la même source pour le même pays :

La Guinée équatoriale est l'un des pays les moins avancés au monde[1]. Cependant il est souvent classé en tête des pays à très fort revenu par habitants. En réalité sa situation de pavillon de complaisance fait grimper ces chiffres, même si globalement l'argent n'est pas au sein de la population mais dans les organismes financiers qui le conservent.

That is why GDP per capita PPP is used for, to account the cost of living in said country. The reason why Equitorial Guinea per capita does not reflect the wealth of its people is because of a corrupt government. Equitorial Guinea is oil rich, however only a select few in the government benefit from its wealth.

The issue that puzzles me about Morocco is why the per capita is so low. To be honest I don't think it accurately reflect the country itself. I think Morocco looks way too developed to have a per capita under 5k. I have only been to Teotuan in Morocco, and even though it is not the richest city, I did not see mass poverty and saw a standard level far superior than any country supposedly having a per capita of 4,750. I can only imagine that Casablanca is even more developed.

And to further add to that confusion I find it weird that countries like Egypt have a high per cpita even though it has larger population and to be honest, looks less developed than Morocco.

I was not trying to offend anybody I just had an honest question:)

To solve this issue, more people prefer the PPP method instead of nominal. The PPP method takes into account the cost of living eliminating any issue such as which you stated.

I have come up with the same thoughts myself but I have no idea what the reason may be! But we got to remember that Morocco still has a very big rural population and they are not the biggest earners, at least compared to those in the citites.

I think that our per capita is low because as stated previously the rural population in here is HUGE (around 50% of the overall) moreover the informal economy is omnipresent which doesn't help to reflect the reality of our economy

At least 30 billion euro is been earned in the informal sector...

Yes, many developing countries have informal economies.

For example, the shop you visit that sells you something may not necessary returns you a customer receipt. But the owner takes the money and improves himself and upkeeps his business.

The government takes nothing and does not know of such consumption as there is no recording.

When GDP is computed, you know the consumption is somehow UNDERVALUED in relative to the marketplace.

There are also other countries that heavily rely on Net Income Inflows vs Outflows. For example, Remittances from your citizen that work overseas and returning the money back to his home country. GDP does not include this until the money is being used to buy something in the home country.

However to correct that we use GNI - Gross National Income.

Depuis quand le PIB/hab est un agréga sur lequel on se base pour définir le niveau de déveleppement d'un pays au 21éme sciécle ? C'est de la sous-démagogie économique de contoire utilisé folkloriquement et de maniére totalement stupide par bon nombre de gens abusivement influencé par douk les article pondu à la chaine par la mafia des journaliste populiste spécialiste en "défétisme spéctale" et ignorant complétement les notion de base de l'économie... Il faut affiner ton analyse en sectorialisant tes recherches, commencant par les gros agréga inflation limité à moin de 3%, un déficit budgétaire à moins de 6 % et une dette publique sous la barre des 30% du PIB ce qui fait de nous des champions de stabilité économique ( c'est exactement ce qu' on toujours préconisé la banque mondiale et le FMI pour les pays de l'OCDE ) ce qui nous vaut du INVESTEMENT GRADE et des notes supérieur à ceux des pays d'europe de l'EST et du SUD dont l'ESPAGNE depuis cette semaine ! Nous avons la confiance des bailleurs de fond internationaux ( BCE, AFD, BAD, FMI, banque mondial, banques...etc) sa nous permet de nous endetter à des taux extrement faible voir nul ( golf ) + subventions intégration économique ( programmes union Euro statu avancé )... En terme d'IDE on est les patron de la zone MENA avec les turque avec un des meilleurs "environnement des affaire" ( c'est un indicateur qui mesure la stabilite et la fiabilité économique d'un pay ) d'afrique et de la zone MENA, Ensuite quand tu filtre sectoriellement tu t'apercoi que dans les métier de la finance on est dériére l'afrique du sud : ( deuxiéme bourse ( casa ) d'afrique en terme de capitalisation, + un nombre impréssionnant de champions jte donne des exemple on a le deuxiéme assureur d'afirque et le premier du monde arabe ( CNIA SAADA/Colina/LIA du groupe Saham ), la premiére banque du maghreb et seconde aprés l'afrique du sud Attijari Wafa Bank etc.... On est des champions des métier de l'Offshoring, dans les industrie éléctronique aéronotique et automobile etc... une déstination touristique international jouissant d'un trés grand préstige avec chiffres à lappui, PEches agriculture minerai ( OCP, managem etc...) et la liste est langue, hadchi sans rentrer dans les détail...Autrement, aujourd'hui l'IDH est un indicateur théoriquement fiable sur lequel on peut se baser, Malheuresement les mise à jours sont éxtrémement lente avec un décalage de 3 ans... ( qui veux traduire ? :D )

Depuis que le calcul du PIB est celui-ci

The income approach to calculate gross domestic product (GDP) sums the compensation of employees, net taxes on production and imports, gross operating surplus and mixed income.
Le salaire est inevitablement lié au PIB, puisqu'il fait parti du PIB. Il est vrai qu'il y a d'autres facteurs a considérés comme par exemple le living index et le coefficient de Gini, cependant salaire, PIB/capita et niveau de développement dans la grande majorité des cas, marchent en parallèle.
